The accurate name for Bhartruhari's Philosophy is Sabda Advaita. It is
a kind of Advaita only. We have to conclude he belongs to Advaitis
Sabda Dhatu Samiksha is without any doubt Bhartruhari's work. In that
there is a Karika. This Karika is referenced in the Nayana Prasidini
Suddha Tattvam Prapanchasya Na Heturanivruttitaha |
Jnanajneyadirupasya Mayaiva Janani Tataha ||
In this Karika the important Maya is the Mother cause of the World
with things which are Known and we have Knowledge. But the Suddha
Tattva is not the Cause.
We can see Bhatruhari is talking the language of Advaitis. In another
place in Vakya Padiya also he talking the same language.
Satyam Vastu Tadakarair Asatyairavadharyate |
Asatyopadhibhihi Sabdaihi Satyamevabhidhiyate || VP 1-20
In this he is using the Advaiti word Upadhi. He is saying Satya Vastu
is signified by Asatya Upadhis the Sabdas.
